welcome to "cbs this morning." it's good to be back. vice president joe biden is in new york with ceremonies marking the 14th anniversary of the september 11th attacks. on the "late show" with stephen colbert last night, bind talked emotionally about another moment of loss. >> it was his first tv interview about the death of his son beau. bind explains how the pain makes it harder to decide whether to run for president. the conversation had a remarkable amount of depth for late night tv. >> my son was better than me. he was better than me in almost every way. when he was in that accident and lost his mom and his sister, he was very badly injured. almost every bone in his body was broken. he was in a cast from his ankles, both legs, arms, a hook in his chest. i used to carry him around with
a hook in the back. he'd sit in the room in the hospital and turn and say, hon', look at me, look at me, i love you, i love you. 4 years old. nothing changed. a couple months before he died, i was at his house and he said, dad, sit down, i want to talk to you. he said, dad, i know how much you love me, so you've got to promise me something. promise me you're going to be all right because no matter what happens, dad, i'm going to be all right. i don't think any man or woman should run for president unless, number one, they know exactly why they would want to be president, and, two, they can look at the folks out there and say, i promise you you have my whole heart, my whole soul, my energy and my passion to do this. and i'd be lying if i said that i knew i was there.
it's a -- i went out to denver and landed at a military base. i met a whole group of military families, which is not unusual about 100 yards from the aircraft. 200 were in uniform and others were family members. i was thanking them. i really meant it. 1% for 99% of the rest of us. i talked about them being the backbone and sin you of this country and all of a sudden it was going great and a guy in the back yells, met your beau biden, brown star, sir, served with him in iraq, and all of a sudden, i lost it. how could you -- how -- i mean that's not -- i sho'tuldn be saying this, but that -- you -- you can't do that. >> i think that your experience and your example of suffering and service is something that
would be sorely missed in the race. not that there aren't good people on both sides running, but i think we'd all be very happy if you did run, and if you don't, i know that your service to the country is something we should all salute, so thank you so much. thank you. ladies and gentlemen. >> this was a remarkable conversation. i watched the entire thing this morning. >> i did too. >> stephen handled it well. he went right to it after some opening things. interesting thing about the vice president. he talked about his suffering, but he said, look, a lot of people in the country have gone through the same thing i have. we're focusing on me, but this has happened to a lot of people, the loss of people who mean everything to them. >> and stephen colbert talked about the loss of his father and brother in a plane crash. it was an unusual night and you could tell the aud wednesday was paying attention. that was nice to see. very personal and very raw. >> good for both.

of course, not. doing so can sometimes give a campaign a welcome jolt like ellen degeneres's crowd came to her defense over the e-mail scandal. >> we're held to a higher different double standard and it gets a little old to be honest. >> reporter: and the obligatory dance with ellen can make moves. and carly fiorina, bernie sanders, and chris christie. >> reporter: all an effort to put some pop in politic, some humanity in a largely dehumanizing presidential process. rick perry used david letterman to make up for his famous 2012

in our "morning rounds" the gut/heart connection. a new study finds that our gut bacteria is linked to weight, gut, and fat levels. dr. narula is a cardiologist at lenox hospital. i asked people if they knew what it was? no one did but peter said i dated one in college. what is it and what does it do? >> basically we have co-evolved and developed a symbiotic relationship with hundreds of trillions of bacteria that live in our die jess tick track. they don't just affect food and digest but they affect a lot of other systems. they have been shone to reduce the risk of cancer and increase it and now to eventually affect our cardiovascular health. this particular study took blood and fecal samples and use thad and was able to find a link
between the bacteria or micro-organisms in the gut and your body mass index, your hdls, and your triglycerides. they account for differences of about 4% in your body mass, 6% in triglycerides and 4% in hdl. >> how can we pat them on the back and say thank you. >> that's a great question. >> that's what he does. >> how can we improve our microbiome and improve the good and bad. >> there's a couple of things you can do. eating a diet that's good in fruits and vegetables, lower red meat, prebiotics and probiotics can help. but it's create over time. by the time you're born, whether you're cesarean or vaginal it
starts to affect your gut. then the diet you eat throughout your life. in addition the environmental you're raised in. whether you're in new york city or where you live in the country you're exposed and the antibiotics you take and the hand sanitizers. >> should we wave a warning over the use of antibiotics? >> definitely. i think the most is how it affects the heart. we know obesity is linked to cardiovascular disease. they've taken experiments of taking lean mice and given them the bacteria of obese mice and they become obese. the bacteria in the gut affect bile production. it's extra cholesterol. finally if you eat a diet high in choline it produces a product called tmao that causes early
plaque formation and raises the risk of heart and stroke. >> we did a study. eat more sauerkraut and pickles and yogurt. >> i eat myogurt every morning. dr. tara narula, thanks so much. >> thank you. ahead, a tragic mystery on the water. >> reporter: i'm peter van sant of "48 hours." it happened here on the hudson river. an endwajed couple goes kayaking. after he goes missing, the police charge her with murder. >> please call somebody. >> the exclusive 911 tape coming up on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs morning rounds sponsored by cottonelle. go cottonelle, go commando. did you notice anything about the texture? it's very...functionally efficient.

>> that for what wouldn't fill a shot glass, a woman sitting in jail being charged with a murder. >> wow. peter van sant. there's in evidence when you look at this. >> we have some new evidence that we can't talk about this morning that we're going to have on our show tomorrow night. but it's profound and it will change people's perception of this case which has had nationwide publicity as to whether a murder took place on that river. >> well sheerks definitely been judged with all that's in the press and all that you've read about her. >> she has been. but in prosecutorial documents, remember, she said some very incriminating things, that she was happy he was gone, that she was pleased with that. that brought a lot. >> this may have been an accident. >> it may be. >> watch for all that new information. that's a new episode of "48

control of my own emotions and in control of my mind. so it's a way for me not to let the keeper get into me. >> and they probably want to do it and say you can't get that ball past mer. >> or sometimes coopers will point left or right and it makes you think she's pointing should i go the opposite way. it's a little bit of a mind game. >> you speak so warmly about abby wambach in this book. what was so special, do you think, about this year's team? >> you know, we had a lot of bad turns on this team and abby was one of them. i look up to abby. honestly, she's been a rig big mentor to me throughout the national team career so it's great to be able to finally get this world cup for her, the team, the country. she's had the best career and all she was waiting for was that world cup title. she got it. it's pretty amazing to be on that ride with her. >> is there a sense that this is going to give a great push to
women's soccer? >> i think so. i think we've seen that in the last couple of years. obviously it's going to take a long time eventually. just soccer and america has been growing, but it's sloi. it's slow and steady. but i think for women's sports -- i don't think just women's sports but soccer, it's going to help other countries who may not give as much funding for the women's teams, it may give more insight and give an increase to women's soccer. >> you wrote in 1999 you were watching mia hamm and brandi chastain saying i want to be like them. and now people are looking at you, alex and going, i want to be like alex. what's that like to be in that position? you got to play with your friends. what does that mean that girls are sitting at home thinking, i want to be her. >> i did look up to me and

glamorous and the best she could possibly look. >> reporter: warhol it turns out was an almost obsessive collector, amazing thousands of polaroids. the earliest ones from 1958. >> remember polaroids when we first had them. i think of them as disposable and nothing you would necessarily keep. >> he kept everything. >> reporter: michael is the director of the licensing foundation. he began sifting through these frats 18 years ago. >> the difference about warhol is he didn't differentiate life from work. everything he did was life as an artist and these photos speak to that. >> reporter: some of the polaroids became warhol's famous silk screens. others he studied for later works. many of them simply chronicled life. all of them revealed the eye of
it. >> and if seeing the polaroid isn't enough for you. christie's is auctioning off photos this month. they're expected to command up to $25,000. >> talk to me about this one here. >> andy seems to have had some kind of fetish with shoes, with feet throughout his life. it was something -- a kind of motif that he returned to time again and again. >> the polaroid's instagram. documenting virtually everything. it's just that he did it years before anyone ever heard of the internet or social media. >> andy warhol carried around either a camera or tape recorder with him most tty amazing how obsessive he was about life and now looking in the current context of seeing how we've become. >> what do you think he would do with social media today?
>> i think immediately you would embrace it. but the one thing i love about war hall is he was predictably unpredictable. he was doing things with it that we couldn't do with it a that time. i think he would embrace it but use it in a way that we're not thinking of right now. >> the book is on sale now for 1 x $00. thank you so much. we want to pause now to bring in viewers from other parts of the country to honor victims of the september 11th attack. 14 years ago today, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks. the president and first lady rb to leave. a moment of silence at the white house. another ceremony is taking place in lower manhattan where the first hijacked plane hit the
